Golden Globe Winners: The 5 Biggest Surprises
Homeland sweeps dramas but no statue for Mandy Patinkin?!
By Kelly West
While many may argue that Homeland's second season didn't quite live up to its first, it's still one of the best dramas on television, so I certainly won't complain that the show cleaned up last night. In fact, for the drama-specific nominees, it swept the genre. The Hollywood Foreign Press got it right in awarding Homeland the Best Drama series, and for honoring Claire Danes (again) for Best Actress and Damian Lewis (who was nominated but lost to Kelsey Grammer last year) for Best Actor. But where's the love for Mandy Patinkin? To be fair, he was nominated this year, which is more than we can say about last year. But the Actor in a Supporting Role category is a lumped together category that includes comedies and miniseries. And it was Game Change's Ed Harris who took that award. Given Game Change. Harris is certainly great, but it would've been great to see Homeland snag that fourth award, particularly because of just how much Patinkin brings to the series as the patient but intense mentor to Danes' Carrie. Maybe next year!
